  1. Hello - I'm new to unraid and just getting everything setup. How do I know which of the various listed line items represents my "mainboard temperature"? Is it AUXTIN3, PECI Agent 0 or something else? I had to reboot to get the "coretemp" ones listed, otherwise when I installed the app it only showed CPUTIN, AUXTIN3 and PECI Agent O Edit: when I check my motherboard, it shows CPU as ~32C and motherboard as ~39C so I assume AUXTIN3 is the motherboard. I have my BIOS chassis (i.e. HDD) fan curves set to monitor the motherboard temperature. Should I change this to monitor
  2. I'm leaning towards Option 4 but I honestly haven't setup all my drives yet / still waiting on a few server parts to arrive. My game plan right now is to try a full move to Unraid, see if it works and if it doesn't I go with Option 3 because Windows gets unstable over time and I need Unraid running on the top since this is a remote server without IPMI. Do you have any thoughts to any of the points I raised in Option 4?
  3. Hi - I have this same question. Should I not be using Unassigned Devices? I currently have a 1TB NVMe SSD and a separate 500GB 2.5" SSD. I'm confused how I should have both of my SSDs setup to optimize for my use case. Should I be setting each as a "cache pool" and then specify Plex/VMs/appdata/Docker containers to be installed only on the NVMe "cache pool" and make sure this cache pool isn't also set to cache files on the array, while the 2.5 SSD "cache pool" is set as a traditional cache under each of the array settings? 1TB SK Hynix Gold P31 NVMe SSD: Plex metadata with thumbnails +
  4. very helpful, thank you so much. Your knowledge is invaluable!
  5. Ah thank you so much. Does this imply that 350MB/s per drive for the JMB585 should pose no real world issues if I'm only dealing with JBOD 5400RPM HDDs? I'm building a server that I will likely use for the next 5-10 years and down the line I'd like to add 10GbE networking for transferring files in and out of the SSD cache, but my understanding is that 5400RPM HDDs in non-RAID/stripe wouldn't even be able to keep up with something like 350MB/s limit imposed by the controller unless I switch my entire array over to maybe 15k SAS drives or SSDs? For reference, I usually see these driv
  6. Hi - is there any downsides at all to using this I/O Crest M.2 card vs. a dedicated LSI HBA like the 9207-8i? I only have 1 PCI slot so I'm trying to save that slot for a GPU or flash accelerator SSD, and would love to use this little M.2 adapter if there's no performance difference driving 5x 5400rpm HDDs

  8. So I'm planning to move over from a ~50TB Windows 10 / Stablebits DrivePool solution to full Unraid system as my general / media server. I was first thinking of just running a Win10 VM inside Unraid to keep things working perfectly with DrivePool but figured I might as well switch to a full docker system given many others seem to have done that to great fanfare, and just occasionally run a Win10 VM for random odd programs I use. I found a guide / Youtube video to walk me through transferring my gigantic Plex library metadata without rebuilding it from scratch which was honestly my biggest obst
  9. Thank you so much for your reply, it is very helpful. Ive decided if I'm spending 2-3k, it's makes much more sense to build out something with future upgradeability in something like the UNAS 810A or Silverstone CS381 chassis. The QNAP is certainly a super cool machine but I don't think people should buy it new solely to run an external OS, even though it works. The fan speed and inability to upgrade Mobo/CPU 5 years from now are probably the biggest issues with going the Unraid on a new QNAP route.
  10. @HellDiverUK would you be able to comment on my new thread below for those QNAP users looking to transition to a fully Unraid install?
  11. Hmm just found the below thread from @Guns McWar literally a few days ago that basically has same situation as me and reports it working a-okay. Would love to hear anyone else on this forum and their experience running Unraid on QNAP, particularly on these newer models...
  12. So I've been looking for a small-form factor server chassis that solves all my needs as an all-in-one server and I had basically all but decided on the U-NAS NSC-810A until I discovered QNAP's latest models that now come with 3.3GHz W-1250 Xeon processor (similar to Intel consumer 10th gen using LGA1200 socket), Intel P630 UHD iGPU, 16-32GB ECC DDR4 RAM, dual 10GBe ports, 4 2.5GBe ports and two unused PCI 3.0 x4 expansion. The TVS-h1288x (8 HDDs + 4 SSDs) and h-1688x (12 HDDs + 4 SSDs) are basically exactly what I was looking for in the exact form factor and saves me a whole lot of headache on
  13. Current Plex / General Purpose Server i7-4770 / GTX 1060 / 32GB RAM / 48TB *external USB3.0 DAC* array running StableBits DrivePool Why Am I Upgrading I'm at that point where I'm contemplating how best to move forward with upgrading my 8 year old server. Everything performance-wise runs perfectly fine on the system today (1080p transcoding, I don’t expose my 4K library to anyone except my Apple TV) but I’ve put off upgrading to a larger chassis (for more drives) / server-grade components / potentially new OS for many years under the mantra “if it ain't broke, don't fix it
